Hi there!
I’ve recently bought. Maserati Ghibli Diesel!
I have been hugely impressed after searching for over 6 months as I had very specific requirements!

I finally found the car I desired! I’ve always had German cars until now but like you fancied a change and I’ve not been disappointed !

The amount of looks I get is incredible and the sound is great too.

I have just added a Kufatec exhaust system today which is just amazing.. I smile to myself
As people stop to stare knowing I’m driving a diesel hahaha

I hope you get theright car!! Lots for sale so will depend what spec you require ! I waited and waited for the right car and glad I did.

Good Luck
Paul
Thanks for the reply Paul,

what spec were you looking for?
Did you wait until you found it from a main dealer?
Fancy posting up some pics of the car that you waited on getting.

I wanted the Emozione Blue with extended red leather and carbon interior, 19 or 20Inch allows. My plan was to dechrome the car and have the alloys also in black with a view to
Wrapping the pilars and mirror caps in carbon to match the interior.

I was fortunate to find one already dechromed
And have since had the front and rear lights slightly tinted which makes the car look much better and newer in keeping with later models.
In my opinion the car looks fantastic and people fall over themselves looking at it!

I couldn’t be more pleased. I bought from
A specialist it’s a 1 owner low mileage full Maserati History. I did spend a very long time researching. I will try to post some pictures

Good luck

First off,

Hi All 👋🏻, I’m really new to Maserati so did my research as you do, and it throws up so much reliability concerns that I’m really dubious now about making a purchase,

But even my doubts about repair costs and reliability still hasn’t finally put me off, I can’t find anything I like that comes close to a Ghibil for looks

It will be a daily driver for me, so I’m looking for some honest help from you knowledgeable people around ownership of the diesel.

Oh, and I’m looking at either a 2017 or 2018 model, they both have less than 30k miles on them too, from a garage but not main dealer

help please,

cheers
Hi there

here are some pictures as requested of my 2014 Ghibli diesel which has had bedb dechromed adding carbon pillars and mirror caps.

Front and rear lights lightly tinted, mirror caps and pillars carbon wrapped to match carbon interior.

mover extended red leather and an added Kufatec sound system to the exhaust to make it sound awesome!

It’s a real head Even by supercar owners I’ve me.

Cheers any questions just ask and I hope you find a car

Hi there,
Where did you get the exhaust system from and price?
I am keen to know how good it is from the stock system, i have 2015 dhibli diesel, and in sport mode it sounds lovely.

Look forward to your thoughts .

Hi sorry the sound system for the exhaust i meant to say,,,,,
Hi mate.

the car sounded lovely as standard in sport but sounds immense with Kufatec enhanced system. I purchased mine with professional fittingfrom car communications UK.

the Kufatec system which is basically a mini
Computer box comes from Germany and will get sent to the fitter who then fits to the car, it took him about 1-2 hours to fit in the boot and the result is superb.

Hi Stokie,
I have a 2017 Diesel sport version.
The 2018 is different looking front and rear bumper, the gear stick as changed to sometimes in 2018 I believe.
So far I have 60 000km on it, depending on your driving it can eat tires.
The 2018 is more practical for the AdBlue filling, the filler cap is next to the fuel, on the 2017 it is in the boot, by the spare wheel.
Cost of servicing is quite high at the dealer, at least here in France ~1000€ for a normal service, I do them myself now the warranty is over, much cheaper.
I have the computer to reset the servicing. Launch X431 X-diag pro3 works perfectly.
Make sure they have used 5W40 for oil, not 5W30 they used to use the 30 and had a few engine issues, no probs with the 40 grade.
I had to change the battery after 3 years, if you use it as a daily you won't have that problem.
Parts are expensive, but you can easily find alternative parts on the market, which are the same as Maserati is using anyway. Only disks brakes are specific, but parts are readily available.

I have added a few mods to it.
The chrome grill you find on Ali express, a dashcam, a Maxhaust exhaust sound system, and a remap with the EGR closed. she flies now.

On the reliability side I have only had issues with the USB/SD card reader which sometimes does not want to read, the next day it works!!!

A part from that it is grin from ear to ear when I drive it.
Hi IV the diesel what chip are you running ?
